In 14 days, the week long Spring Auction and our celebration of Arts week will begin. The Spring Auction and Arts week will be April 19th through the 23rd and although both will be virtual, this will be a time to continue to celebrate The New School’s 50th Anniversary. The students and teachers look forward to showcasing our visual and performing arts and music performances featuring our students and a special treat with Mr. Troy performing live on Facebook.
The Spring Auction, which is normally our annual Spring Party, is coming together with some great auction items like our traditional class baskets, trips to the beach or New York, an opportunity for a student or adult to be a “weather kid for a day” and many more great items. Ms. Christina and Ms. Natalie will also have a few art pieces to bid on and of course, the wine pull - thank you to our parents for donating over 70 bottles of wine.
To kick off the Spring Auction, our Head of School, Nancy Lang, will be giving a State of the School to the community on Monday night. The week will be filled with art shows and musical and drama performances, highlighting our core values - Curiosity, Character and Community. We will end the Spring Auction on Friday with the opportunity for families to order a meal, supporting a local restaurant and if you buy one, two, or three raffle tickets for the wine pull, pick up your bottle of wine after school. Later that evening, we will be back on zoom to announce the raffle winners for our teacher & staff raffle, the tuition raffle, and other exciting auction winners. We will end the night with a musical performance from our Upper School students on YouTube.
I think everyone would agree, we wish we could have this event in person and we will next year. I hope all of our parents, friends and our faculty and staff are excited about the Spring Auction. So please mark your calendars and look for more information about how to be part of the Spring Auction in the next week.
